Spooky greetings, crafters! Today I am continuing my Mini Halloween Coloring series – you can find part 1 here. I am using the most adorable and funny digi stamp today, and it’s by the artist Goebie. Best new? This digi stamp is available for free!
As you can see, my technique of layering the colors in many steps really pays off when it comes to covering up the kraft card stock on this project. I was also delighted with the Luminance White pencil, a gift from my crafty friend Sonja from SonjaK-The Art of Stamping. It becomes quite opaque when you layer it, and you can blend very smoothly with it.
I have tried three different whites so far: the Polychromos white can be applied in many layers, but I don’t find it to be quite white enough for my taste. The Prismacolor white is very opaque and can shine on kraft, but you are limited in the layers you can apply because of the wax bloom. The Luminance seems to be a happy middle ground and combines the best characteristics of both pencils. Definitely a new favorite of mine.
The digital stamp is by the German artist Goebie – I used one of her other images here – and this little monster is actually available as a freebie! Head on over to her blog post here and download it. If you can’t find the link because the post is in German, you can grab it from the product list below. You would make my day, though, if you’d head on over to Goebie nonetheless and leave her a kind comment (in any language you like) to thank her for the free image. Good karma coming your way for that!
